UQ Art Museum Professional Development Seminar for High School teachers

UQ Art Museum Professional Development Seminar for High School teachers

In association with the exhibition Born to Concrete: Visual Poetry from the Collections of Heide Museum of Modern Art and The University of Queensland, please join UQAM for a program of lectures, talks and performances that explore the creative space of art, language and poetry.

Visual Poetry Seminar: Intersections of Image + Word seeks to expand understanding of the possibilities created by combining word and image, on or off the page, and enhance understanding of the experimental ways artists and poets have made works in the spirit of earlier avant-garde movements such as Dada, Futurism and Fluxus. It is in the context of the avant-garde that the seminar acknowledges the innovative work of the late academic and writer, Nicholas Zurbrugg, in developing a theoretical and creative space in which to appreciate visual poetry as a cross-pollination of art and language.

This is the first interdisciplinary seminar developed for English and Visual Art high school teachers and UQAM hope it will be of interest to you.

Attendance at the seminar contribute towards the required 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development for teachers. Certificates of participation will be provided.

When:  Friday 6 September 2.00pm – 4.30pm and Saturday 7 September 9.30am – 2.00pm

Where: UQ Art Museum, The University of Queensland

Cost: Free
